...A THUNDERSTORM WITH TORRENTIAL RAINFALL WILL IMPACT WEST CENTRAL
PICKENS AND NORTHEASTERN OCONEE COUNTIES UNTIL 945 PM EDT...

At 917 PM EDT, Doppler radar was tracking a thunderstorm with
torrential rainfall 10 miles west of Pickens, or near Lake Keowee,
moving north at 15 mph.

Locations to be impacted include...
Six Mile, Salem, Lake Keowee, Keowee Toxaway State Park and Nine
Times.

Wind gusts up to 40 mph will be possible in these areas.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

The combination of gusty winds and saturated soil conditions will
cause scattered trees and power lines to fall. Seek shelter inside an
interior room.

Torrential rainfall may flood areas with poor drainage, such as
ditches and underpasses. Avoid these areas and do not cross flooded
roads. Water levels of small streams may also rise rapidly. Seek
higher ground if threatened by flood waters.
